UNION COLLEGE COACH JEREMY WISE
“…Jenna is a very smart student athlete that can come into college and learn the speed of the game and college nuances fairly fast I believe. She will be one to transition to college well on the court and classroom. She is a great student which also makes her a great thinker and coachable kid on the court.
“…I’m excited to teach the position in college to someone with lots of experience and years in the same role at HS. Jenna should fit into the culture of the team well and all those things we ask in our season that is also the start of her transition into college at the same time. What she doesn’t know right away, I’m sure her scrappy competitiveness and team player attitude will help her out right away.”
